the rolling pin bakery & patisserie.

Birthday time! In celebration of me becoming older and wiser, this wise girl decided to forego the traditional cake and bought three delicious sweets from The Rolling Pin instead.  The Rolling Pin is a small bakery on St. Bernards Road almost opposite of Norwood Morialta Middle School.  It's nestled among four or five other small shops so look out for their sign as you drive past.  

They have a large selection of sweet and savoury - pies, pasties, croissants, tarts, macarons, cakes - and they also have a small area for indoor and outdoor seating.  If you're driving there, as I did, don't be discouraged by the lack of parking out the front.  There's another car park at the back!

The Zeppelin: passionfruit creme with raspberries encased in a raspberry macaron shell
 When I saw this in the display counter it was definitely a "I MUST EAT" moment.  How could anyone say no to something so beautiful? The macaron shell was slightly too chewy and not crumbly enough, thought that may be due to it's size.  The passionfruit creme was packed with flavour and the raspberries were incredibly juicy and plump.

Vanilla Creme & Strawberry Tart
This was probably my favourite out of the three.  The vanilla creme inside was a little bit tart, a little bit sweet and a whole lot of creamy vanilla deliciousness.  It kind of reminded me of yoghurt but it didn't taste like yoghurt.  The pastry crust was really buttery and didn't crumble at all.

Passionfruit Creme & Raspberry Tart
Similar flavours to the Zeppelin, although this time encased in a pastry crust and dusted liberally with icing sugar.  For me the passionfruit creme in the tart wasn't as strong as it was in the macaron, but overall it was still a delicious treat.

I don't remember the prices for each individual item but all up it was around $10.00.  The staff there are lovely and take the time to go through explain what each item is, and are patient enough to wait while the customers ho and hum around before finally making a decision.  I can't wait to go back to sample more of their treats very soon!
